Creating positive links
During summer 2019, SOS Posidonia Menorca and the La Ciència al teu Món (Science in your World) organisation ran a series of initiatives in public spaces. The aim was to raise awareness and the increase the engagement of citizens with marine protected areas. A touring interactive station, set up in public spaces in Ciutadella and Fornells, was designed to reach as many families and tourists as possible during the summer season.
Visitors took part in a host of creative and thought-provoking activities such as SeaDance, an installation in which, through music and dance, young people explored the workings of species and organisms of the coastal ecosystem; and the Posidonia Day Care area, a children’s play area mimicking a playschool for marine babies of the posidonia meadows.
